Rumor has it that there’s some tension between Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. The two have been tapped to perform during the Super Bowl LIV halftime show and according to LoveBScott, sources say interactions are “icy” between the two performers.
The source said, “As usual with these Super Bowl performances, the performers are having trouble fitting their set into the time constraints. Right now, the halftime show in the works is running way longer than the allotted time. The NFL, along with the powers-that-be are trying to solve the issue.”
The source continued, “To make matters worse, both Jennifer Lopez and Shakira aren’t exactly ‘cozy.’ There were initial plans for them to perform a significant portion of the halftime show together — but that’s out the window. As of now, they’re just planning to appear briefly together at the end of the set. There isn’t any real feud, but there’s definitely a chill in the air between the two stars.”
As for why the ladies aren’t really getting along, a sources said it’s because Shakira wasn’t initially part of the show. The source explained, “They’re telling everyone that limiting how much time Jennifer and Shakira spend on stage together has a lot to do with their different styles of music, but others close to production say that it has more to do with the fact that Jennifer was forced into sharing the performance with Shakira in the first place. Initially, she believed the halftime show was hers alone — only to have the NFL and Pepsi (the Super Bowl halftime show sponsor) add Shakira later.”
